Professional Communication: Essentials


When we live in a world where different parts of the globe touch the food we eat, the goods we consume, the movies we watch, the technology we use and the money we would like to make, it becomes very important to know how to communicate effectively and to do that across diverse cultures.

This course, covered in three small modules, focuses on the essentials of professional communication, and the writing and speaking skills needed to connect people in the global workplace.

The aim is to equip students needing to know:
- what it means to be an effective communicator, and
- how to write and speak in different professional contexts for different audiences, fulfilling different purposes.

The course will provide hands-on practice in the application of principles taught.
